We left Queenstown in the morning and drove up to Aoraki, stopping at a lookout on the way to have some lunch. When we got there we found that there was only one walk that we could do because of all the snow. It was supposed to be an hour each way to Kea Point but because the snow was so deep there wasn't really a path, most people had just walked the quickest route so it only took 40 minutes. We were basically walking through a mountain range covered in snow, it was pretty awesome. Although, the snow had iced over so that we couldn't make snowmen or throw snowballs. The lookout was completely covered in snow, so that the bench was only just accessible for us to sit on. As we sat and looked around, I noticed that the lake below the mountains had completely iced over too. We were surrounded by mountains, all of which were pretty tall, and began to wonder which one was actually Mount Cook. We never found out which one it was. We turned around and made our way back to the van, making a well-deserved cup of tea upon arrival. It was then back down the road we'd come up just hours before and freedom camped outside Wanaka.
